This is very good photography. The AOA (angle of attack) cannot be exceeded by any fixed wing flying machine. What you may be viewing as near vertical is not more than 16-17 degrees of AOA (pitch) against the relative airflow. If you view a light weight commercial airliner jet taking off from Karachi, you can see the rate of climb, its phenomenal.
